California voters are confronting not one but two ballot initiatives to legalize sports betting — and an onslaught of advertising owing to the nearly half a billion dollars that’s been spent on both sides of each. We host a debate on Prop 26, a discussion with the only side of 27 that would talk to us, and a reporter covering the historic sums of money that have entered both races.
- Kathy Fairbanks, spokesperson for the Yes on 26, No on 27 Coalition.
- Becky Warren, spokesperson for the No on 26 Coalition
On the money behind the campaigns:
- Taryn Luna, covers California politics for the LA Times.
(Where’s the Yes on 27 campaign? We made repeated requests to book them for a debate, but they never replied. They had just pulled a bunch of their TV ads after this poll showed the campaign trailing by a 20+ point margin).
